​Barnett to head new Derbyshire coaching structure

Barnett to head new Derbyshire coaching structure

Derbyshire have announced a new coaching structure which will be headed by new Director of Cricket Kim Barnett. 

They say it is designed to give the club the best chance of achieving both red and white ball success. 

The new model sees Derbyshire move from operating a large team of full time coaches to a more streamlined team aided by player coaches, who will also be supported on an occasional basis by a number of specialist coaches.  

Barnett, who in his career spanning 24 years won six Lord’s finals, will step down as Club President to take on his new role.

Chairman, Chris Grant said: "The Elite Performance model regrettably has not produced the results that we have been hoping for. 

“We believe Kim is the perfect man to lead this new structure.

“He has done it all as a player and knows how to win competitions, and his experience, knowledge and tactical awareness will be invaluable as we move forward.”

Barnett added: “We have some great talent here and some great facilities with a tremendous fitness and medical team supporting the players.

“However, we have not achieved enough success on the field in recent years. We’re determined to change this.”
